Audience vomits and faints during new James Franco film

It seems that the new film by everyone's favorite ubiquitous actor/author/academic superstar, James Franco, is not for the squeamish.
 
According to the Sun, paramedics were summoned to the U.K. premiere of 127 Hours, after audience members started fainting. In the film, Franco portrays Aron Ralston, the true-life mountain climber who cut off his own arm after it got trapped under a rock.
 
And that wasn't the only reaction.
 
As one witness put it, "A man got up in the row behind me to rush out but he was sick in the aisle before he managed to get out." This comes on the heels of two people fainting at a U.S. screening earlier this month.
 
An unconfirmed rumor (started by me) has it that Franco was actually one of the paramedics on the scene, and was working on a John Keats dissertation in the ambulance on the way over.
